Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is a non-invasive technique revolutionizing the way we approach rejuvenating skin care, offering a promising solution to those seeking a firmer, more youthful complexion. Here’s why RF skin tightening should be on your radar:

Understanding the Basics

Radiofrequency energy targets the dermis, the skin’s middle layer where collagen and elastin fibres reside. These two proteins are the scaffolding of your skin, providing strength, elasticity, and the ability to bounce back. 

Starting in our late 20s, production of collagen and elastin slows, leading to fine lines and sagging. RF treatments heats these layers, stimulating collagen and elastin production, and effectively refreshing your appearance.

How It Works

  • Direct Targeting: TempSure RF energy penetrates deep, heating the dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin without harming the epidermis.
  • Natural Rejuvenation: The process rejuvenates the face by encouraging the production of new collagen, tightening the skin, and improving texture.

Ideal Candidates

  • Individuals experiencing early signs of aging
  • Those looking for a non-surgical option to tighten skin and reduce fine lines.

Deep Dive: What is Collagen and Elastin?

Collagen: Think of your skin as a trampoline. The trampoline’s fabric mat, which provides strength and firmness, is akin to collagen in the skin. Over time, just like the fabric mat that can wear out and become less robust, our skin produces less collagen. This reduction in collagen leads to increased visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.

Elastin, in comparison, is similar to the springs connecting the fabric to the trampoline’s frame. These springs give the trampoline its flexibility, allowing it to stretch and return to its original shape after being used. In our skin, elastin functions similarly – it helps the skin stay flexible and return to its original shape after movements like smiling or frowning. As we age, our skin’s elastin production diminishes, leading to increased sagging and less ‘bounce-back’, making signs of aging more apparent.

Together, collagen and elastin play crucial roles: collagen maintains the skin’s firmness and structure, while elastin provides flexibility and resilience, allowing the skin to return to its original state after movement or expressions.

Situated below the epidermis, the dermis acts as a production center for collagen and elastin. Our laser and RF treatments are designed to target this dermis layer and stimulate more of their production in order to tighten and rejuvenate the skin.

Specific Areas of Treatment

 

Face:

TempSure RF helps to tighten facial skin, addressing early signs of sagging skin and smoothing out fine lines. It also promotes better blood flow, which contributes to a healthier, more radiant, dewy complexion.

Neck:

RF helps tighten loose skin and reduce the early appearance of what is colloquially referred to as ‘turkey neck’, a common aging sign. Although it is not designed to treat advanced stages of loose skin, it is an important tool to help address early signs of aging in this area and is a great way to keep up maintenance and delay this sign of aging.

Eye Area

  • Challenges: The thin, sensitive skin under the eyes first shows aging signs, with common issues such as dark circles, crow’s feet, and bags.
  • TempSure RF Benefits: Boosts collagen and elastin production, improving skin support, reducing bags, smoothing lines, and enhancing blood circulation to minimize dark circles.

How does RF treat the eye area?

First, here’s how aging affects this area:

 

  • Under-eye skin is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your facial skin and shows signs of aging sooner.
  • Blood circulation isn’t very good under the eyes, and blood tends to pool (similar to when you have a bruise), leading to dark circles.
  • Loss of elastin and collagen makes the skin sag, giving us bags. Fluid retention under the eyes puffs up those bags. 
  • Due to the fact that the skin is thinner, it shows all the darkness, sagging, and crow’s feet. 

 

The good news about how RF treats the undereye area:

 

  • Bags: Improved collagen and elastin production make a big difference under the eyes. the appearance of bags under the eyes is improved by providing better skin support, which smooths it out and lymphatic drainage to fight fluid retention.
  • Dark Circles: Increased blood circulation from the heated dermis reduces dark circles, as it promotes lymphatic drainage and diminishes the pooling of blood that causes discoloration.
  • Fine Lines: Tightened skin smooths out the appearance of fine lines and helps reduce crow’s feet. 

Eyelid Tightening:

Drooping eyelids due to aging are also a result of decreased collagen and elastin. TempSure RF tightens the existing collagen fibres in the eyelids and encourages new collagen and elastin production. As it tightens, the skin becomes more elastic and bounces back after movement.

Why Choose RF Skin Tightening?

  • No Downtime: Unlike many other advanced treatments, TempSure RF doesn’t require recovery time, making it an ideal lunchtime treatment.
  • Versatility: particularly effective for persons aged 30-50, it’s great for pre-event prep and yields noticeable results with a series of treatments.
  • Start Strong: For optimal results, a series of 3-5 treatments (spaced 10-30 days apart) is recommended. After that, many clients enjoy returning for maintenance sessions.

What can I expect during my RF skin tightening treatment appointment?

TempSure RF offers a comfortable and safe procedure that is completely painless, ensuring a pleasant experience for patients without any downtime. Many guests have likened the sensation to that of a soothing hot stone massage.

Here’s what you can expect during your TempSure Envi treatment:

  • Begin your TempSure RF journey by engaging in a comprehensive consultation with one of our skilled laser technicians. During this important step, your skin expert will diligently evaluate your individual requirements, engage in an open discussion about your goals, and attentively address any inquiries you may have regarding the treatment. Together, we will craft a tailored treatment plan that caters to your distinct skin, body, and lifestyle, ensuring that your expectations align with the anticipated outcomes.
  • Lie down and settle into a position of relaxation as you prepare for the procedure. A nourishing gel will be gently applied to the treatment area, facilitating smooth movement of the TempSure handpiece across your skin.
  • Your experienced laser technician will begin the treatment by skillfully maneuvering the handpiece in circular or grid-like patterns over the targeted area. As you unwind, you may gradually feel a gentle warmth permeating the deeper layers of your skin. Treatment times typically range from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Following the procedure, you may notice slight redness, which is a natural response to the warmth and subcutaneous tissue heating. This pink or redness will diminish shortly after the session. The best part? You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment, without any interruption or downtime.

The process of collagen rebuilding, ignited by the treatment, begins during the session itself and extends its transformative impact over the following days, weeks, and even months as your stimulated cells undergo rejuvenation. To optimize the desired results, your laser technician will recommend a series of treatments, ideally spaced every 10-30 days. This strategic approach ensures that you harness the cumulative benefits of continuous collagen production and gradual skin tightening, unveiling the most noticeable and lasting outcomes for your skin.

Prepare yourself for a rejuvenating and blissful experience with TempSure RF, where you can achieve remarkable results while maintaining your usual routine with ease.
